A kick up the arse....

Well here I am just killing a little time catching up on me fellow bloggers, whilst deciding upon what to do with last nights left over’s from a great piece of lamb before tonight’s dreaded twelve hour shift, when it dawned on me “bloody hell it’s February already”. Now I realise that this is not a great shock to you out there as most of you upon reading this will think ‘idiot, course its February’, but the point is its February ALREADY! I mean to say, hells teeth that’s a twelfth of the year gone already! And what on earth happened to January?

Now I’m not having one of my many (ask Clare) mid-life traumas but I really feel that time is passing me by at a phenomenal rate of knots and that so far this year I’ve not really made a 100% use of the time available, yes I’ve got excuses, work, weather, not yet up to full fitness blah, blah, blah, but that is exactly what they are, excuses. So from this day forth I’m determined not to let another minute go by with out it being used for something productive towards enriching mine and Clare’s outdoornessey (yes I know it’s not a proper word but it should be!). After all you just don’t know when your short, flash in the pan, life will end it’s merry journey do you? When Mr. Death and his rather useful scythe (reaping souls, hay and a host of other uses) comes a calling one day I want to be able to look back along the trial that I’ve followed and think to myself – well, that was a adventure, now on to the next one.

So if any of you out there get the feeling that I’m slacking please feel free to give me a timely reminder too get ‘out there! Oh and I think that’ll be lamb rissoles for supper….

Best regards,

John

Murphy - the use of the lamb is good start toward wisely using your time.

I would gladly be one of your "time watchers", prodding you along when I see you slacking,but you know what they say about throwing stones in glass houses . . .

BTW - I like "Outdoornessey"!!!

Work and winter. They don't mix at all, and maybe that's making you a bit anxious to further your outdoornessey. I get the same feelings, and the more I get out, the more I want to get out. Can't seem to get enough.

Neat pic.

Well said, John, you can count on a swift kick in the Arse from me ever once in awhile. I would hope you would do the same for me.

Thank you gentlemen, always thought that I could count upon your support, and of course the boot up the rear end will be returned in times of need!
Owl - you hit a chord there - the more I get 'out there', the less I want to spend 'in here'
Wolfy - You could just try a prod with a cane?
Regards,

John

Life has it's moments just like days do. You write when you can and visit when you can.
that is what is nice about blogging, there are no deadlines.

Great picture - hope you enjoyed the lamb and, you know, 'seize the day' and all that kind of thing. Cheers.
